Actually, they are. The problem is that the area has multiple teams fighting for the same viewers. If we consistently put a better product on the field, the Reds could take back Columbus, Indianapolis, etc from other teams. I'm clearly no expert in the field but seeing the areas and populations...and then seeing what the Padres recently got for example, I'm optimistic.
